Maybe the best thing you can do while being in Andorra la Vella. Just accesa the path from anywhere in the city and wander around for a good overview of Andorra. Nice and easy walk, but be warned, that in March the winds will make things complicated :-D

One of the best ways to experience the beauty of the Andorra da Vella, a path on the hills of the city with a great view in any direction!

I really recommend this trail. Beatiful view above the city. And you will also see beatiful Flowers and Nice gardens.

Once you make it to the top, the view is absolutely worth it! I'm not going to lie, considerable effort is needed to make it to the top. The incline is very steep, so wearing appropriate footwear is essential. Once at the top, the hike is extremely flat and easy, offering beautiful views of the city.

As an extremely clumsy person, I was probably overly cautious on the climb up and the descent. Was it worth it? Yes. Would I do it again? Absolutely, but better equipped (i.e. Water and better shoes).

We loved this walk. We went on a Saturday morning, and it was fairly quiet and peaceful. The walk takes you above the town centre, and along a very pretty canal. You’re surrounded by gardens and allotments, and also get lovely views of the town. It’s an ideal length, although the initial climb up from town to the canal is quite steep.

We were fortunate enough to be in an hotel just below this walk. Still a bit of a steep climb but it is flat when you are up on the trail. With spectacular views of the city and local gaming and gardens it was well worth the effort we had a hot day but plenty of benches to rest if you need it.

A very nice place to have a short walk. Great views over the city, but to get there you need to climb up some stairs.

We enjoyed our canal hike during our stay in Andorra La Vella. It is a steep walk to get to the trail but convenient to the city. The hike itself is flat along the small canal. It offers beautiful views of the city and the valley. It is about 2 miles/3 kilometers in length. This hike is definitely worth doing.

So far, the Rec del Solà irrigation canal and the
Rec de l’Obac irrigation canal (located on the
shady part of Andorra la Vella) have enabled –
and continue to enable – inhabitants to practice
sport, take walks, view the town from a perspective suitable for understanding its growth or
simply blow off the stress they accumulate in
urban dynamics, all just a few metres from the
city centre.
These irrigation canals have been and remain
a natural lung that connects the town with the
natural and cultural landscape surrounding it,
and they generate endless elements for environmental education and for thinking about
sustainable development.
Based on this fundamental idea, Andorra la Vella
City Council decided to link the area of the two irrigation canals with other parts of the parish that
are of high natural, historical and cultural interest in order to establish a large peripheral band
around the city of Andorra la Vella. This band,
called the Anella Verda (“Green ring”), is intended
to become a long track of around 15 kilometres
that will encircle the whole parish.
Near the Solà irrigation canal, you’ll find three
interpretative routes: agricultural transformation
in the valley, a short route that will enable you
to appreciate agricultural and livestock activity;
growth and urbanisation in the valley, a route
that starts in the irrigation area but delves into
the historic and traditional centre of the parish;
and human beings and their adaptation to natural hazards, a route that will explain how people
manage issues related with natural hazards.

Absolutely stunning view! There are several entrances to walk up the mountain. It is about a 10-15 minute walk at a normal pace. Steep areas which requires trainers or at the very least flat shoes. No heels! There are simple info points at the top and several benches/ rest areas. There are 2 view points as well. We spent about 1.5 hours up there but you could easily extend it if you had a picnic, too. Highly recommended :)
